Cardiac arrest management in the Pre-Hospital Environment
Presented by Ashleigh Lowther
Tuesday 10th April 2018 - 8PM
The webinar discusses Cardiac arrest management in the pre-hospital environment. Ashleigh has taught on Advanced Life support since 2013 and is attempting to create an equivalence for the pre-hospital setting. She believe wholeheartedly in the basics being done 100% but all too often we let academic curiosity overcome this. The talk is a chance to open the discussions, channel your thoughts on this subject and wonder how you may perfect the delivery of this.
Ashleigh is an Advanced Clinical Practitioner in Emergency Medicine at Heart of England NHS foundation trust, Birmingham. She trained as a nurse in the Royal Air Force which took here to Afghanistan twice, Oman, Cyprus, America and several hospitals in the UK. She has nursed in UK ED’s, a military trauma centre, the back of a Chinook Helicopter, a C17, a Tristar, a cruise ship and even a speed boat.
Ashleigh has combined in hospital emergency medicine with pre hospital medicine for the last 10 years, working for the West Midlands CARE Team in the Midlands.
